Whistler XCS-800 laser falsing

Just got a whistler XCS 800 cordless detector.It is almost constantly falsing laser warning.Driving me nuts.Good batteries,mounted on windshield which is pitted,does not do it when laser turned off.Works very good otherwise.Live in rural area.Had 3 other detectors never do this.(with same car,windshield)
Would the pitted windshield cause this? Doesn't seem to do it when pointed out door window.Did not seem to do it last night going home.Maybe once or twice.

Have you tried it in another vehicle to see if it still alarms? The windshield pitting will not have any effect on the unit. After you test it in another vehicle contact Whistler at 800-531-0004.

Laser alert constantly goes off


Laser is very sensitive to false alarms often set off when driving by an airport, or military base. Set your laser on City Mode and pay attention exactly where it goes off. Mine goes off constantly in the same place which is a air force base in Tucson, AZ. Unless you drive like crazy shut it off in the city although the cops like to use a hand held one in school zones. In 6 years of driving in Arizona I have had one real laser alert, and other than false alerts, real ones are far and few in between. Check when and where the unit alerts and use different sensitivity settings. One more thing, if your laser warning goes off you already have the ticket since the cops use them at close range unlike the radar bands. Hope this helps.

Whistler xcs 800 says c1


Yes, because the unit is in City 1 mode. Most Whistler models have more than just a "City" mode. Pressing the CITY button again will toggle through the different city modes and return to HIGHWAY mode.

Got a whistler xrt-695 from individual. unit powers up goes thru all the frequencie alerts and laser alerts, scans menu to tell what is active. Seems to be perfect. x-band is on, K,Ka, Laser, all of it,...


how long have you had it? Have you had a radar detector before this one? Try a factory reset - hold in the power button and the quiet button, while holding in these buttons plug in the power cord. The unit will beep twice indicating that its reset. Remember the unit is not a "Cop" detector its a radar detector so not all police cars have radar in them and if they do they may not have it turned on.

New speaker


if you have an old cordless phone like a uniden or cell phone you can take the speaker out and attach it to your radar detector it works just fine in mine,no problems. you might have to remove the speaker housing if it has one. Justy be real careful not to puncture the speaker as i almost did.
